Huawei Exec Pokes Fun At US Spying, Snowden At Tech Show

Oppo invite MWC

Xiaomi's announcement was light on details about when we can expect an actual device with the Light technology.

The United States government is dispatching a big delegation to press its case with telecom executives and government officials that they should not use Huawei as a supplier over national security concerns.

If you've been following the headlines, it should serve as no surprise that one company really stands out this year: Chinese tech giant Huawei. The annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) runs from 25-28 February in Barcelona, where companies from all over the world gather to share new products.

Huawei has an outsize presence at MWC Barcelona, a four-day industry showcase of mobile devices and innovations that's expected to draw 100,000 visitors.

Network operators seeking to quickly deploy the new wireless networks are in a bind as Huawei's 5G equipment is seen as being considerably more advanced than that of its rivals such as Sweden's Ericsson or Finland's Nokia.

Huawei is caught up in a clash between the United States and China over network security for the next generation of mobile services, with President Donald Trump's administration saying Huawei has enabled Chinese state espionage.

Trump's tweets on Thursday did not specifically mention the Chinese company, which is at the centre of a cyber security storm, but the comments could be viewed as toning down the US administration's opposition to the network equipment supplier.

Huawei's counteroffensive includes unveiling a new folding 5G phone, and having executives speak on keynote panels and brief journalists at the show.

"The U.S. security accusation on our 5G has no evidence - nothing". "We will be there for our customers when they need us". The issue should not be decided by politics, he said. "He said that the USA needs faster and smarter 5G and even 6G and he has realized that the U.S.is lagging behind in this aspect. I think his message is clear and correct".

"It will delay 5G in Europe by probably two years", Read said.

"A country that uses data in the way China has - to surveil its citizens, to set up credit scores and to imprison more than 1 million people for their ethnic and religious background - should give us pause about the way that country might use data in the future", Strayer said earlier this month, according to The Washington Post.

GSMA, an association that represents 750 mobile operators worldwide, is recommending a testing and certification regime for Europe to ensure confidence in network security while "maintaining competition" in equipment supply.
